Nearly 50 Public Research Organisations (PRO’s) from the Benelux join HIHR to together offer investment opportunities in the Human Health to investors who are interested in early stage ventures.
We welcome knowledge institutes within the Benelux to join our platform and thereby support our initiative.
Twice a year HIHR organizes pitch events, with Quickfire sessions scheduled the weeks before.
Partner PRO’s of HIHR are entitled to free tickets to the f2f-pitch events, following their affiliation to HIHR. This concerns both KTO staff and spin-off team members.
Participation in the online Quickfire sessions is free of charge and unlimited.
Pitch nominations are reviewed and selected by the HIHR selection committee.
To support the spin-offs in the preparation, the selected pitch presenters are offered coaching on their pitch presentation. Ultimately, they will pitch at a live event.
Projects that don’t fit the pitch event (yet) are offered a Quickfire session
Premature or very early stage initiatives, are invited to our informal Quickfire sessions to test their concept with investors, industry partners and KTOs professionals.
These sessions are offered online in the weeks prior to the pitch events. In addition QF-presenters are welcome to join the pitch event, to learn from other projects and network with peers, investors and other stakeholders.
HIHR organises lunch webinars four times a year, to share expertise in the academic venture building setting. These webinars take place online and are freely accessible to all employees and spin-off teams of our participating institutions.
As active contributor to and supporter of our academic venture development platform we promote your institution via your logo on the HIHR website and all PR-expressions.
Ability to network with relevant investor and industry stakeholders and your peers at other Public Research Organisations.
